Channel Manager Typical Scenario
Typical use case of message exchange flow between Channel Manager and Inventory can be resumed as:
Synchronize Hotelier product:
Channel Managers retrieve static inventory (Hotel/Rate Plans/Rooms) from Inventory using HotelRatePlanInventoryRetrieve in order to map hotelier inventory into their system.
Channel Managers Push/Notif Rate Plan information to Inventory using HotelRatePlanNotif in order to synchronize hotelier rates.
Channel Managers Push/Notif Availability information to Inventory using HotelAvailNotif in order to synchronize hotelier availability/allotment.
Synchronize Bookings (Confirmations / Cancellations):
Inventory can Push/Notify reservations and cancellations to Channel Managers using HotelResNotif and CancelNotif.
Channel Managers can retrieve reservations using HotelResRetrieve.
Use both systems as described above.
Optionally, check if synchronization is correct:
Channel Managers are able to retrieve dynamic rates using HotelRatePlanRetrieve.
Channel Managers are able to retrieve availability using HotelAvailRetrieve.
